It is impossible to say how long it would take you to become skilled enough to teach Systema, but people who wish to become an instructor of the Russian Martial Art Systema usually start with the following steps:

• Study from at least some of the instructional films and read STRIKES: Soul Meets Body and Let Every Breath in order to have the general understanding of this martial art.
• Train with an affiliate instructor in your area, if there is one. You may find our list of affiliate instructors at Systema Schools page.
• Attend a seminar conducted by Vladimir Vasiliev. Vladimir travels regularly to teach Russian Martial Art seminars in various parts of the world.
• Once you have studied from the instructional DVDs and/or with a Systema instructor near you, you may also proceed with the Systema Video-Correspondence Program which enables you to get feedback and guidance from Vladimir through video recordings, as listed on the SVP page.

To become a Certified Instructor, it is best to come up for training at Vladimir's school in Toronto and join the regular scheduled group classes. For detailed information, please view the Visit Toronto page.
